Don’t believe so, so the second hand market is your best bet. Jeans-wise they seem to be going with the Levi’s repros at the moment, plus their ever present WR101 (which I posted above), WR201 (heavier version of the 101 that Thanks M8 just linked) and bush pants. 
 

Edit: they totally do! Arcuates are different though and I’m not convinced the rise is as high https://fortyniners.ocnk.net/phone/product/84

Aren't warehouse producing for human made and bape aswell?

I guess that explains how much I liked those patten leather sneakers with the stars on the side, back in middle school…

Little update (also included in the first post)

Update:

The denim is made from Memphis cotton, it's RHT and weighs 13.5oz and features a salmon/faded red selvedge line. The mill is unknown at this point.
While the leather patch red "made by Conner's" it's not confirmed they are actually made by Conner's Sewing Factory.
While the jeans called 1953XX this is not necessarily the year the jeans are based on but rather a nod to the Panhead 1953. The jeans feature the typical details of a late 40s, early 50s pair though.
We have a leather patch, a V-stitch at the top button, hidden back pocket rivets and hidden coin pocket selvedge. The buttons are made of iron and are branded. The rivets are branded as well (WR & Co - SF) and are not rounded. There is a red (rayon?) tab which read WRIDE on both sides. The back pockets feature a Levi-esque arcuate.
The stitching looks like 100% cotton and it already creates some nice puckering on the seams although the jeans aren't washed yet. The belt loops are only slightly raised. The stitching around the hidden rivets on the back pockets feature an intentionally "missed stitch" so I expect some early wear&tear in that area but I don't know the story behind that.

Cracking info BF. 

At the time of the first CSF / Westride jean I recall reading that they went with the 1948xx as that was the first year of production of the Panhead (and not based strictly on a jean from 1948 as per your 1953s). It makes sense that their ‘1966’ is named a 65 - the final year of production of the Panhead. 

I also read the arcuate is based on the handlebars of a chopper - at least that’s the official line and it’s simply a coincidence it resembles a Levi’s arcuate ;)

Hey @unders are the wrangler repros broken twill or LHT?

I saw that as well. RHT seems very odd. I would’ve expected broken twill or maybe LHT

My Wrangler 10MW 64 repros are RHT, which is historically accurate.

@Maynard Friedman I learn something new each day. 
I thought wrangler had only used LHT and Broken Twill. 
So they’ve actually used all 3 through the years. 
I’ve never had any RHT. Any cool characteristics to it compare to the others?

I think the fit is great - they’re slim but that’s the point. How much do you think they might stretch? Do you think the wash shrink and wear stretch might cancel each other out?

Thanks Mike! Yes I think with cold soaks and stretching the fit should be manageable, the denim seems to be stretchy so this could be of help

Nice jeans and fit b_F.  But don't lose any more weight -- you're trim and fit enough!

I'm already in full mode! Gained about 5 kg since we got the news. It's hard to keep the discipline if the other half eats whatever she craves :D

That is a damn near perfect fit. 
I always buy my jeans with a similar fit and I like to force em to stretch. Ha

Gave them a cold soak yesterday, to be sure I can fit them afterwards. Shrinkage was minimal. 1" waist and 1.5" Inseam. But they don't feel tighter, rather looser then before because the denim is softer now. Gonna give them a proper soak/wash again in a week.

Are the back pocket size on these average ... i.e., as compared to WH, Ooe, Denime, etc.

Gave them a proper, warm machine wash yesterday. Shrank an additional good amount but still wearable :D

@beautiful_FrEaK how have your 1953XX's been coming along?
These are kind of a cross between West Ride and Warehouse, interesting nonetheless. Made using the Deadstock Blue denim from WH.

Here’s a pair of Westride 1948 I found on yahoo auctions, thinking if I got my same size as CSF I’d be good, but no. They are very very slim, even slimmer than CSF. The denim is grainy but supple, and the previous owner faded them quite nicely.
